The Highland Tap was as packed as it's ever been for last Wednesday's Garrett Sayers Trio show. Kicking off around 9:30, the GST played a two hour set that had the room moving. The uniqueness of this project cannot be overstated, as the combination of Garrett on bass, Patrick Lee on keys & Jonny Jyemo on drums, make for a mind-blowing musical experience. Also featured was some extremely unique material. Imagine J Dilla, Mos Def and Q-Tip tracks all done instrumentally, without the rap and with a touch of jazz.
Among the crowd of regulars and newcomers at The Tap were String Cheese Incident & EOTO percussionist, Jason Hann, Juno What's Steve Watkins and The Kyle Hollingsworth Band's Dan Schwindt. The increasing turnout of a handful of the scene's musicians speaks loudly to the growing popularity of the Free Music Showcase at The Tap. As the night got later, more and more dancers took to the dance floor with folks looking in through the front window of the patio.
